Tips for Pleasant and Efficient Voting

On Tuesday this week, some in St. Clair County will be heading to the poles. There are some tips to make sure your voting experience is as pleasant and efficient as possible. Remember to visit the Michigan voter website to view a sample ballot, locate your polling place, or track your absentee ballot. 

Obviously, certain times are better than others to cast a ballot. The peak hours that most people vote are from 7 a.m. to 9 a.m. and then from 4 p.m. to 8 p.m. The busiest times in the polling place tend to overlap in the morning and evening rush hours. Voters are less likely to encounter long lines if they are able to visit the polling place between the hours of 9 and 4. No matter when you vote, though, remember that all voters who are standing in line at 8 p.m. when the polls close, are entitled to cast a ballot.
